About

IAS Girls Club was ​founded in the Spring of 2018 by Aveus Johnson in the Charleston, SC area as an after-school program. The initial purpose of the club was to connect with and educate young girls on important concepts, offering them tools that can be used to be successful in life. In 2019 the club became community-based and accessible to girls in grades 6th and up in the North Charleston area. In the future, we hope to expand to ages 5- 17.

Our program focuses on the following six pillars: idea of self, relationship skills, decision making, social awareness, healthy living, and higher education. Our girls enter our program as seeds and leave as buds, ready to bloom and evolve into their own. Our Vision is that every mentee that comes through IAS will know that they are somebody, their voice is important, and that they will find their purpose and use the tools provided to facilitate their goals.

Our interactive sessions take place twice a month from 10 am - 12 pm
